Best Practices in Fair Use come to the research library community

11 06 2010

For the last several years, the Center for Social Media at American University (directed by Pat Aufderheide) and the Program for Information Justice at the University law school (with which I’m affiliated) have been worked with various groups of practitioners (documentary filmmakers, media literacy educations, on-line video makers, providers of open courseware, dance archives, and others) to devise so-called Statements or Codes of Best Practices in fair use for those communities.

Some information about that effort can be found at Now, thanks to a grant from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation to the Association of Research Libraries, we’ll be part of a team devising fair use standards for institutional collections of print and other media in support of teaching and scholarship.
